Is it possible to create a bootable usb with the Samsung Magician Secure Erase tool from a computer that does not have a SSD? When I installed Magician on my laptop, all the options in the software are grayed out, seemingly because there is no compatible SSD on the system.

Can I not create a bootable usb with the tool and use it on another computer? If no, how would you suggest i secure erase my SSD?

I would use MinTool Partition Wizard to completely and safely erase all of the content of the SSD.

Hint, overwrite all data with zeros or ones.

The Samsung tool wants to see a Samsung SSD.

Can you create it on the system where the Samsung drive lives?
And why are you doing a secure erase?
